"His marvellously funny - though characteristically unsparing - view is combined with his vivid realisation of the dust, colour and blazing sunlight of a world he had imagined since childhood. Clonk Clonk plunges us into an even more ancient way of life, primitive, delightful, matriarchal. It contains one of Golding's most appealing female characters, as well as a fascinating and surprising portrayal of masculinity. Envoy Extraordinary brings to life the court of a Roman emperor, nameless, benign yet accustomed to power. He is confronted by a brilliant but unsophisticated Greek whose fertile inventions, centuries before their time, include printing, the pressure cooker, and explosives. This story, later adapted by Golding as his play The Brass Butterfly , is fastidiously comic, philosophical and, as always with Golding, full of narrative irony. All three stories show Golding as a gentle satirist, bringing the past colourfully before us, with an awareness of human frailty but an amused affection towards the individuals who manifest it"--Publisher's description
Herr der Fliegen by William Golding( visu )
1 edition published in 1990 in Undetermined and held by 1 library worldwide
Nach einem Flugzeugabsturz kann sich eine Gruppe englischer Jungen auf eine unbewohnte Insel retten. Trinkwasser und Früchte sind ausreichend vorhanden und es gelingt den Sechs- bis Zwölfjährigen sogar, ein Signalfeuer zu entfachen. Doch auch wenn sie die äusseren Umstände bewältigen, befindet sich die Gruppe in wachsender Gefahr. Dem besonnenen und umsichtigen Ralph, der zum Anführer gewählt wurde, steht Jack gegenüber, ein rücksichtsloser Verfechter des Recht des Stärkeren, der immer mehr "Jäger" um sich schart. Die Gruppe zerbricht endgültig, als sich ein rettendes Schiff nähert, aber nicht aufmerksam wird, da das Leuchtfeuer erloschen ist. Die eingeteilte Wache hat ihre Pflicht vernachlässigt. Jack gewinnt weitere Anhänger. Ralph kann nicht verhindern, dass die "Jäger" schliesslich auch auf die schwächeren und anders denkenden Bewohner der Insel Jagd machen. (Quelle: Umschlag)
